Research Curriculum at Inova
The OB/GYN program places a major emphasis on resident scholarly activity. The curriculum is designed to advance residents’ knowledge of the basic principles of research, including how research is conducted, evaluated, explained to patients, and applied to medical education and patient care. All residents will participate in scholarly activity and mentorship begins in PGY 1 year. The curriculum includes the summer research series of didactics, introduction to IRB workshops, Journal Club curriculum, assigned research mentors from the core scholarly committee, and support of a biostatistician for resident research. Each year research day highlights the productivity of our residents. Additionally, residents are encouraged to submit their work to a national meeting and publication.
